  • Two more charged in gang-linked kidnapping of N.C. prosecutor's father

    WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (Reuters) - Two additional suspects have been charged in the gang-related abduction of a North Carolina man whose daughter had prosecuted one of the eight people now accused in the plot, U.S. prosecutors said on Wednesday. The suspects are accused of kidnapping Frank Janssen from his Wake Forest home on April 5 and holding him hostage until he was rescued by federal agents in Atlanta four days later. Janssen's daughter is a Raleigh, North Carolina, prosecutor who helped send Blood gang member Kelvin Melton to prison for life on state charges. Charges were announced on Wednesday against two others, Jakym Tibbs, and a suspect identified as "John Doe" or "Kirkwood Quan," said the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

    2015 Dodge Charger: First Look (25 photos)

    Chrysler's Dodge designers could have opted for the status quo when updating the Dodge Charger, an aging platform that still draws thousands of buyers a year. Instead, they went for broke — adapting the Dodge Dart's design language to the larger car, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission that boosts highway mileage to 31 mpg in six-cylinder form.

  • FATHER OF FOUR IS SELFISH TO PUT HIS HEALTH AT RISK

    DEAR ABBY: I am a 34-year-old wife and mother of four. I'm concerned about my husband. He is 44 and drinks at home every evening after work. I don't mind him having a few cans of beer, but he drinks between six and 12 a day. He refuses to see a doctor for checkups or when he is sick. I am worried about his health. The drinking could have an impact, and I would like him to have a physical exam to put my mind at ease. I tell my husband I want him to take care of himself to live longer for our children's sake (our youngest is 4). ...

  • Here are all the passwords you need to change right now because of Heartbleed

The massive vulnerability in OpenSSL protocol impacted 66% of all sites on the Internet at the time of its discovery, and now companies are scrambling to fix the issue. Most big companies seem to have done a pretty good job of acting quickly, but this bug is several years old so users have been at risk for quite some time regardless of how quickly a site might have patched the flaw.

  • Ex-Sheriff Wanted 'Women In Front' In Case Of Shootout With Feds

    A former Arizona sheriff who supported a Nevada rancher in his land dispute with the federal government says he would have put women in the frontline if officers started shooting. An armed standoff between Cliven Bundy and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management over grazing rights ended with the federal government abandoning its plans on Saturday to impound Bundy's cows that roamed public lands. Richard Mack, a Bundy supporter who served as sheriff of Graham County, Ariz., between 1988-1997, told Fox News on Monday about a planned strategy if "rogue federal agents" had opened fire. ...

    Royal Baby Abroad! Prince George Evokes Memories of Prince William as a Tot (6 photos)

    Prince George has arrived Down Under! The 8-month-old prince, currently on a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand with parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, deplaned an Australian Airforce jet in Sydney on Wednesday and promptly created a fashion frenzy since his powder blue embroidered cotton Annafie romper evoked nostalgia for a baby Prince William, who wore a similar outfit in 1983.

  • Why Putin’s Adventure in Ukraine Is Doomed

    From Russian President Vladimir Putin’s perspective, the plan to annex parts of Ukraine probably goes something like this: take Crimea; “It is classic Russian foreign policy to try to destabilize a country before it completely takes it over,” said Edward Goldberg, a professor at Baruch College and the New York University Center for Global Affairs. “Russia has always considered Ukraine as a nation culturally and historically connected to it.” This plan had been unfolding just as Putin wanted--pro-Russia protestors have taken over government buildings in eastern Ukraine, while Russian troops wait at the border.
